The Austin Technology Incubator (ATI) depends on a dedicated staff of student interns for a big part of its success. This group, made up mostly of University of Texas students and recent alumni, comes from a variety of backgrounds, including Computer Science, Communications, Pharmacy, Engineering, English, Library Science, Business and Journalism. ATI’s student interns perform an assortment of functions, including member-company due diligence, member company project support, marketing, public relations, day-to-day operations, and event planning.
After leaving ATI, most interns go on to successful careers in law, business, industry, academia and, in a few cases, they even start their own companies! In the weeks that follow, ATI will be showcasing some of its recent interns, highlighting (in their own words) their experiences and how those experiences helped shape their career paths.
